Mohr, N., Young T., Harland, K., et al. (2019). Emergency Department Telemedicine Shortens Rural Time-To-Provider and Emergency Department Transfer Times. (Abstract only.) Telemedicine Journal and E-Health. 24(8):582-593.
The authors reviewed incidents where 2,857 of 127,928 qualifying emergency department (ED) encounters consulted telemedicine. They found that telemedicine decreases ED door-to-provider time and length of stay, and they emphasize the need for future research on the impact of telemedicine in rural areas.
